pharring a web application - phpMyAdmin
Apr 21, 2006 @ 07:46:44

From Greg Beaver today, there's a new post showing off an exciting new demonstration of the PHP_Archive package to install phpMyAdmin in one single .phar file.

But for now, I'm excited to have a unique demonstration of PHP_Archive's power. The file http://pear.chiaraquartet.net/phpmyadmin.phar (Note: right-click and save) is a single-file bundling of the popular phpMyAdmin application. The only thing it needs to function properly is a config.inc.php file. A template file is auto-generated on the first time it is run.

He gives a bit more instruction on how to get it all set up, but it's a very cool example of the power of this little package. There's a few bugs Greg mentions that he and Davey Shafik have been looking into, but no major issues.

Davey Shafik's Blog:
A Year in Retrospect
Jan 13, 2006 @ 07:08:47

On his blog today, Davey Shafik has his personal look back at his year in 2005 and what kinds of things he accomplished.

Just like Last Year I'm jumping on the bandwagon again.

Despite the fact that it is hard to top some of the feats I managed last year (I for one, am not planning to marry anybody else!) it has been a very productive and exciting year for me.

Of the things he mentions, here's a few of the more memorable ones:

So, thanks to Davey, especially for all his work - especially on the PHAR/PHP_Archive project - it's already proved invaluable to the community as a whole...

PHP_Archive 0.7.0 is released
Dec 01, 2005 @ 07:15:18

In this new post on Greg Beaver's blog today, there's the announcement of the release of version 0.7.0 of his package, PHP_Archive.

As I blogged about earlier, PHP_Archive has been completely refactored both to reduce the size of the archive and to improve its efficiency tremendously.

This new release also opens up the possibility of making a .phar extension, something that would outperform PHP_Archive even more. Making it super-efficient will even allow running PHP apps right out of a .phar.

You can grab this latest release (0.7.0) from the package's PEAR page at http://pear.php.net/PHP_Archive...

Continued leaps forward - PEAR.phar returns
Nov 28, 2005 @ 05:36:20

Greg Beaver has this new post today on his blog with a look at even more of the great leaps forward that PEAR is making - especially with the PEAR.phar packaging.

Those of you who have followed my blog may remember a proof-of-concept PEAR.phar single file version of PEAR introduced back in April. This PEAR.phar was a bit clunky, and had trouble on linux, as well as with installation on most systems.

These considerations led me to rethink the format of .phar files. Due to Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, I haven't yet been able to contact Davey to get his feedback, so these are strictly my own observations and ideas. I have been able to rework the format of PHP_Archive-based .phar files, and to my great delight, accessing internal files is now a O(1) operation, with only a slight increase in memory usage per-phar.

Basically, the doanload page and snag your copy...also, keep an eye out for PHP_Archive 0.7.0. If all goes well, it should be just around the corner.
